Introduction: Knex CCB1 (Compact Combat Bow 1)

Picture of Knex CCB1 (Compact Combat Bow 1)

This is my first crossbow on instructables. I had made one before this that was almost as powerful but. this thing was too beast for it. Enjoy the pictures.

nice crossbow.

It might be old, but it's insanely powerful

SYMEN (author)Vaetheon2013-01-17

True. Crossbows usually are. When I'm done with my D-bow v2 I'm going to post showing the gun off. It will use a rail pin system to prevent the firing pin from exploding, and will use a more complicated trigger mechanism than of the first bow I posted. If it works right, it will also be insanely powerful, maybe even more insanely powerful than most insanely powerful guns. :)

Mine doesn't have a pin though so it cant explode

SYMEN (author)Vaetheon2013-01-17

Yeah, but you have to keep in mind. My gun is using a Logic bow mech. That means it's a pin gun powered by a ratchet slingshot, or a hybrid k'nex gun if you prefer simpler terms. Plus, as an added bonus ratchets are so freaking strong they can easily hold back more than 20 bands. I think I just went overkill with power. XD

nice lol

SYMEN (author)Vaetheon2013-01-17

Thanks. I forgot to mention it also uses a concept from oblivitus that allows front barrel mechs built for it to be removed and interchanged. If you noticed my first D-bow being assembled with just metallic silver rods, it uses the same concept. For example, you have a TR-18, a shotgun shell, and a NAR barrel mech. These can be removed from the front of the gun and be swapped out, turning 1 gun into 3 different types of guns without just building all 3 guns as a whole. This is a truly innovative concept that saves on parts. If I can REALLY get the v2 to actually work, it would be so epic it would even out perform most railguns. And that would be a huge step towards making adaptive weapons possbly the future of k'nex gunning.
